Do post photo. I don't have a Boler but I have been redoing my windows and might have some glazing bead that matches.

bead for Hehr radius windows

The original Hehr window on our 78 17' boler all are 19 5/8" tall and the 3 wider windows are 55 3/4" wide. Glazing strip is 1/2" on the front face. They do not match the glazing strip from vintage trailers

I don't have that bead on my widows but I have seen it for sale in various places on the internet. Here is one source. You might also find it on Ebay.

I see that you also need some weep hole covers. It is not difficult to make new ones.

I have some similar weep hole covers on my Sunrader although a little narrower in width. I was able to make replacement covers with some thin aluminum. That metal can be formed around a block of wood. A pair of workshop scissors will cut the aluminum. To adhere it in place I used the gel superglue from the Gorilla Glue company. It adheres very well to aluminum. That particular super glue has some rubber in the formula which makes it shock resistant. They have been on there going on 4 summers now and are still holding strong.

The original weep hole covers appeared to have been made of styrene plastic and failed from UV damage. I used some thin aluminum from a hobby supply but even pop or beer cans will work just fine for the job as the bends give the piece of metal some strength.

Got some weep covers the right size but the clips are to close wil try to cut them and glue them into the correct position first if works will paint them to match the windows also got black glazing they only have black and white we really would prefer grey the original colour but will have to do the repairs with what is available to us.

Have new seals to use on the shower door and the entry door will install them when the rain stops.

Just ordered a new counter for the kitchen and arbrite to cover the table top as well as to go over the stove splash.

Will strip the stove of the ugly black paint and try to restore it to the original metal finish if not to damaged. Otherwise will pick a nice off white to match the walls

Can you list the source and stock number of the bead you used, this wood help others who are looking for something that at least works to repair their windows...
